    NV - Gloria Redman, 12, stabbed to death, Las Vegas, 12 March 2008

    March 13, 2008

    ]New details in murder of 12-year-old girl

    There are more disturbing details in the killing of a 12-year-old girl. A police report says nothing seemed wrong Wednesday when Gloria Redman stayed home from school, sick, under her father's care.

    Her mother left for the store, the father stayed, watching a religious program on television. When she returned, her daughter was dead.

    Maryann and Cyril Kasprick arrived Wednesday night to their space cordoned off by crime scene tape. They had no idea what they were coming home to. "Just something that never should've happened," Maryann said. Something they call unbelievable.
    The police report starts about noon Wednesday, when William Redman told a 911 operator his daughter, 12-year-old Gloria Redman, was dead because that was "...the way Jehovah does things." He went on to tell the operator that he had a knife and that he "fell on her with it."

    Man Claims He Saw God Before Killing Child
    Man Still Hospitalized After Incident

    LAS VEGAS -- Shortly before stabbing his 12-year-old daughter to death, William Redman saw "God," according to Redman's arrest report.

    Police said Redman, 54, attacked his daughter, Gloria Redman, 12, while his wife went to the store. Gloria had stayed home sick and was watching television with her father, officers said.

    Redman told an emergency worker that while watching a religious show he "saw God" just before attacking Gloria. Police said Redman then stabbed his daughter multiple times, including a wound to the throat.

    The police report doesn't indicate there was any type of argument that would have caused Redman to become enraged.

    This is tragic. There are 5 other children in this family and it seems the sisters are a bit older than Gloria, not sure about the 3 brothers.

    So, so sad,

    What a nut! How can some people use the name of God as an excuse or a reason to do such hurtful things? I will never understand.

    I hope there is drugs involved, or at least a past history of mental illness. I just don't see how a normal, sane, sober person could do something like this!

    He is obviously mentally ill, I would guess schizophrenic. Many schizophrenics have religious delusions. It is a symptom of the disease.

    How tragic! I would like to know more about the relationships within this family and if the mom was ever concerned about her husband's judgement. Were there any signs of instability before this?

    I agree with you. It's hard to imagine that this was the first sign of anything being wrong with his mental health. Usually, there seems to be an escalating pattern of decompensation leading up to really dramatic breakdowns like this. This is so hard to understand.

    I agree - that's why I posted about the other children. 5 of them I think. I would like to know if this guy just "snapped" out of nowhere or if there were prior concerns/symptoms/signs that led up to this. The way the articles are written, you just can't tell what might have happened. But I get the impression the other children are older and have moved left home already. I wonder what they think? If any of them suspected there might be trouble at home (or if they left because of trouble at home)?

    This poor little girl.

    What TV. show he was he watching? Charismatic claim to God and see angels alot. Many even claim to be prophets speaking for God. I feel bad for this girls mom too. It's terrible that her father killed her.
